After a great effort from campaign supporters over 300 formal objections have been lodged with Brent Council and there are over 2000 petition signatures, showing just how much the community cares about keeping a pub and community space at 110 Walm Lane. At our stall outside Sainsbury’s on Saturday we collected 181 signatures in just 3 hours – that’s 8 times the number of comments that Fairview got in their so called consultation! We’ve also received great support from other groups in Brent as well as from from the London Pubs Group and CAMRA.
We expect the planning application to be discussed at Brent’s Planning Committee meeting on 16th January. We will make sure that the meeting is aware how unpopular the proposals are so watch this space for details.
In the meantime, if you or your friends and neighbours haven’t yet signed the petition you can use this link and it’s still possible to submit an objection and to write your councillor to let them know how you feel. There’s still time but not much – so be quick!
